will anyone be buying? a lot of gloom and doom - much of it rightfully deserved. but its tanked a lot already and may possibly be basing. the most significant recent event for me is that Kopp bought shares for his wife. anyone who invests family money knows the significance of this.
from 1/17/2012 release "GCS tested the (STI) wire and confirmed that it met their critical current power objective". What additional performance is needed if any and was there any followup if needed?
The do-nothing elitist BoD has no motivation to protect shareholder interests now that elections are over and they can go back to their golf games and crossword puzzles while the workers bust their humps. Please surprise me.
ROFL. Very funny and great well-deserved sarcasm. Still wondering about your motivation for all these posts - please :)
SCON has strategic agreement with Robinson for such applications. Robinson's most recent success (transformer in May) used local wire provided by GCS a local supplier., GCS has tested SCON wire. There is promise but you need to confirm the use of SCON wire, if not now, then in the future
By no means a vote of confidence. Apathy prevails.
Stoll and Langer each got 1.5M votes, withhold 0.3M+, non-voting 7M+
In contrast Grant Thornton accountant 7.5M votes for, 1.3M against, 0.1M abstain, 0 non-voting
suggests that it may be beginning to base after downmove. the risk of being in stock is slow fade. the risk of being out of stock is stage 2 qualification announcement with several million share day and doubling of price.
tip of the hat to mask who has presented rightfully deserved skeptical case and wall of worry. disappointed that he has not been refuted by any bulls.
He may or may not come to STXS. He or She will be an activist investor who sees at least 10x potential, is willing to put his money where is mouth is, will be welcomed by grassroots employees. will shake things up (including the BoD) and will make things happen.
One person can make things happen in a big way. Several years ago Bob Duggan, an entrepreneur with no medical background put flesh/cash in the game to buy his way into Chairman and CEO of PCYC. He spent $13M buyng stock at $1.30. He took a $1 salary and made deals with large pharma that were very cash flow positive.. He recently sold his holdings for $3B with stock well over $200. In his late 60s and early 70s he had both wisdom but also the energy level and drive that younger execs should emulate. Set high expectations and short timeframe and good things can happen.
He did the same last year with personal holdings - this year he's doing it with fund holdings - in a few ill timed bursts, then nothing for a while. We should take note and vote him off the board next year. Do not confuse him with Mills who has been buying albeit modestly. Their actions show that Mills believes in company, Middleton does not.
about product not being stage 2 qualified despite testing by 30 customers.. TIA
Great reply! Mask's skepticism is healthy and warranted. Your reply is well done. It is this type of dialogue is that is very helpful in our investments. GLTA
mask - if i might ask, what is your motivation for posting. no one posts for altruism. i agree with much of what you say but believe company may ultimately turn with huge upside (10-20 bagger), albeit huge risk (25% chance of success) - all imo. i try to avoid pumping and bashing. i actually make a comfortable living investing in portfolio of depressed stocks - big winners more than offset losers. bearish posts generally come from shorts, burned longs. disgruntled employees or those hoping to buy at lower prices. what is your motivation. GLTY and GLTA
the sec filing mentions winson , moez kazzam and another guy. they own reputable stocks including MSFT, BAC, QCOM. i believe winson has a twitter follower named t. boone. pickens
is known for going against grain, buying early and stick with position. They recently bought into SCON. They bought into OCLS at beginning of year. Look how its down - nada for several month, then taking off during the last week. I like their philosophy which is why I am holding SCON and will buy dips if there are any
